I didn’t realize it’s actually been 2 years since I finished Code Realize since the English version actually only came out a year ago. Due to this I was a bit rusty on what happened but fortunately the after stories gave a brief review of what happened in case people like me forgot. The FD also adds an original mafia gang story as well as routes for Finis and Sholmes (which take place as if they were in the first game’s story.) The final section is a little bit of time Cardia spends with Dela-chan’s daily activities.
So this game ended up flying under everyone’s radar because 1) no one understood wtf the trash pick up system really was and 2) why are there Gundams in my otome!? The good news is the system was actually really easy and just terribly misleading on their site. The bad news however, there’s still Gundams, and unless you’re a huge Gundam fan, the battles get really repetitive and tedious which may have been ultimately this game’s downfall. Our story begins with our heroine, Eve, who is some ancient sage that’s been alive for 3000 years. She lives in an undersea shelter called the Neosphere with her AI Cradle. Meanwhile the outside world the earth is in shambles and 2 guys, Sud and Atharva manage to fall into the Neopshere. They are being chased by the government who uses a robot golem to break into there as well. When Sud is hurt, Eve calls upon her powers for help and summons the ancient GUNDAM TEARBLADE.
Tsukishiro Michiru dreams about the world of Calmina every night. There she meets a bunch of anthropomorphic jewels who treat her like their blow up doll while she spams her necklace powers in their faces. Once she wakes up, she actually runs into their “look a likes” in real life. Will Michiru ever figure out the deal with her dreams and be able to get some restful sleep? Good thing this game was from the bargain bin of bookoff cause it really wasn’t worth anything. 😂
Hanamaki Ichiko attends university with her childhood friend Hino who joined a “Okunezato Occult Club”. The club leader posts on a forum for everyone to have an offline meetup at the Okunezato and Hino invites Ichiko to come with him to check it out. Ichiko’s older brother Hanate disappeared a year ago after going to the village so she decides to come along in hopes to find clues on his whereabouts. Little does Ichiko know that this isn’t her first trip to Okunezato as well as the dangers and mysteries surrounding the small mountain town. Once she and Hino arrive at the Furinkan inn, they meet up with the rest of the members. After Ichiko takes a part time job at the inn during her stay, she starts to recall memories of her childhood. Major spoilers ahead so please skip to my final thoughts to avoid as usual.
Nakayama Hinako has lived her entire life at an orphanage, learning combat arts for fun (and self defense.) On her first day of high school, she bumps into her long lost twin brother Hikaru. Of course this is all just as keikaku by Hikaru because as it turns out, the two of them are children of a yakuza family. Hikaru’s father wants him to beat up all the 1st and 2nd year students and become the “bancho” of the school in order to show the pride of the Onigashima family. Unfortunately Hikaru would rather cross dress like a girl, eat ice cream and go shopping. Luckily for him, Hinako can actually kick ass so he blackmails her by pretending to “bump” into her and get hurt. He claims that if she doesn’t crossdress as a boy and go to the Shishiku boys school in his place, he will force her to pay his medical fees. 😂 Hinako doesn’t wanna get the stink eye from the Yakuza and she’s happy she found some form of family so she agrees. She ends up (being forced) to move in to a small apartment with her brother and his manservant Sakaguchi who takes care of the twins meals & transportation (though mostly Hikaru’s.) It doesn’t take long, but Hinako ends up kicking ass of the strongest guys at the school, and gaining a ton of fanboys as she becomes the bancho of Shishiku high. How long will she be able to keep her identity a secret?
